The Music Man at the RVCC theatre January 22, 2011

RVCC Theatre
The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in Branchburg will present Windwood Theatricals’ production of The Music Man, Sunday, January 23, at 2 p.m.

The presentation is part of the Theatre’s 2010-2011 Merck Series, made possible for the past 19 years by a generous grant from The Merck Company Foundation.Tickets cost $40 and $45.

An affectionate paean to Smalltown, USA of a bygone era, Meredith Willson’s The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman Harold Hill as he cons the people of River City, Iowa into buying musical instruments and uniforms for a boys’ band he vows to organize. And this is all despite the fact that he doesn’t know a trombone from a treble clef.

Filled with classic musical fun, tender romance and such favorite tunes as “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Goodnight My Someone,” “Gary, Indiana” and “Till There Was You,” The Music Man is the perfect all-American music. The original Broadway production received five Tony Awards, including “Best Musical.”
For the seventh year in a row, Courier News readers voted The Theatre at RVCC as the “Best of the Best” in 2010 in the “Theater” category.
